    Description: This study examined negative Facebook posts about racial minorities. A content analysis was performed on a sample of 10 confessions posted between September 13th 2014 and March 25th 2015. Results showed nine central issues prevalent in the posts. Language, other races being racist, and losing Canadian identity were the most prevalent issues commented on. Additional issues were the over utilization of resources, marrying within your own race, minorities thinking they know everything, bad driving skills, working in the food industry, and feeling outnumbered.
